Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Juliette's touch literally shatters people. After incarceration, the Reistablishment frees her in exchange for the use of her abilities. Adam, the only person she could ever touch without consequences, provides another option. The author mentions Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken" during the novel. That poem centers around the idea of choice and fits well with the story.
